Corpus Christi and First Communion

The Solemnity traditionally known as Corpus Christi, now known as the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.  Some liturgical trivia: How many remember Corpus Christi and Precious Blood being two separate feasts?  Before the Novus Ordo (1969), Corpus Christi was the Thursday after Trinity (the Sunday after Trinity was simply the Second Sunday after Pentecost), while the Precious Blood was on the fixed date of July 1.


Brass trio (two trumpets and a French horn) will be on hand for three of the Masses, one of them (the 11:15) is also our First Communion Mass.

Ordinary: Messa Populare Laus Tibi Christe (Federico Caudana)
Psalm 147: R./ Praise the Lord, Jerusalem (BMP) (PDF)
Alleluia: Lucien Deiss, C.S.Sp.

Hymns, etc:
